Connecting .nsf as DB and Crystal reports as reporting tools

I need to build a Web page that connects .nsf as db and Crystal reports as reporting tools. How can I make a list of summarized contents (in Matrix form) that will view on the Web page and be an automated link to the Crystal report after double-clicking each row?
You may be able to use ODBC, our experience suggests that it will result in very poor performance. You better have a performing system constructing an agent that passes the query to a C++ backend interface to Crystal. We typically write the resulting data to a temporary file and then use LotusScript to "Print" the data out to the browser. Don't forget to provide a unique name for the file since you may have multiple requests during the time you?re reading or writing the data.
